‘Help wanted’ signs out at Vacaville Unified School District – The Reporter

By Richard Bammer

The “teacher wanted” signs are out at Vacaville Unified, and the proof is this: Several district officials are at a major school jobs fair today in Seattle, Wash.

Speaking by telephone Tuesday, Randy Henry, the district’s chief human resources officer, said he and two other district employees are attending the University of Washington Speech & Hearing Sciences Public Schools Job Fair, just one of more than eight recruiting trips his department has planned this year.

“There is a shortage of teachers in Vacaville just as there is in California,” he said. “The University of Washington is probably the top school (in the nation)” for speech and language teachers.

Today’s daylong event is Henry’s third recruiting trip so far this academic year, an effort to make sure the 12,300-student district will have enough trained teachers when doors open for the 2016-17 school year.
